7:05 am
perhaps should have been. they led the royals in three games very late. they were undone partly by an untimely error but mostly by a kansas city offense, which always seems to save its best for last. the royals keep most of their core intact. but for now the most immediate concern is the present. >> this really was a case of the royals winning rather than the mets losing in the end, wasn't it? >> yes. i think they clearly were the better team in the end. this morning u.s. intelligence sources tell cbs news a missile or rocket propelled grenade likely did not bring down the russian jet liner over egypt. they are not yet ruling out a bomb inside the plane.

7:07 am
structure of the plane disintegrated in the air at a high altitude the russian transport agency head said. claims from an affiliated group that it had a hand in the crash are being dismustissed by egyptian and other experts. the final word is hopefully contained in the black box recorders which will be examined by experts from egypt, france, russia and ireland. the plane was given a clean bill of health in its annual review earlier this year and airline officials insisted there were no complaints about it before the flight, all of which is cold comfort to relatives and friends of victims who have been showing photos e-mailed just before the plane took off on its way home. analysis of the black box recorders and the thorough recovery and examination of all the debris could take a month or more according to egyptian and

7:12 am
be bloody or abdominal cramping or a low grade fever less than 101. the incubation period is three to four days although it could be anywhere from one to ten days. if you've eaten at chipotle and you have vomiting or diarrhea, call your doctor. if you have severe diarrhea or vomiting, call your doctor. use rehydration, soups, gatorade. don't take antibiotics because those can convert this illness into a syndrome that happens in five to 10% of the cases and can result in kidney failure. >> now they're saying the issue seems to be limited to these six restaurants. do you think this issue will grow?
7:13 am
>> i think that health officials have said that yes we will expect to see more cases in the coming weeks or days. commonly people that have diarrhea don't go to the doctor. or if they go, they don't get their stool tests which is the way to diagnose this. hopefully they expect in the next self- next several days to weeks. the cdc go through a group of steps to isolate the source and then do source trace back. i think in this case it's something in the food supply chain because it has affected multiple restaurants. we expect to see some answer relatively soon. >> soless less in the food handling than in the food supply? >> yes.

7:30 am
gripping his states from towns to wealthy suburbs. you called this an he epidemic. >> the worst i've seen. i've been involved in law enforcement since 1970s. it's in every part of ohio and so prerervasive. we used to think of drug epidemic on cities and the drug is going to the suburbs and also they are in the rural areas. >> what is the lure? i mean, in other words, why so many are they doing this? heroin is a scary drug. >> it's a scary drug. i don't really know. what i can tell you is when i was a county prosecuting attorney in the 1970s, heroin was something that most people who were doing drugs wouldn't touch. i would talk to them and, you know, relatively small county you got to know people and you got to know the drug dealers because we would arrest them and you talk to them. say, hey, what do you do? they list a whole bunch of crazy stuff they were doing.
7:31 am
hey, i'm not crazy, dewine. crazy people do that. >> even the drug dealers say i won't touch that. >> i wouldn't do that and wouldn't put that needle in my arm. >> you say you cannot arrest your way out of this problem. what do you mean and what should you do? >> the drug cartels are doing a great job in marketing this. i think most people in law enforcement today understand and tell me, and i totally agree with them, we can't arrest our way out of the problem. we want to do what we do in law enforcement. in ohio, we think we do a pretty good job and try to help local law enforcement. really we need to focus a lot more on prevention and treatment. >> jenna morrison, who we just saw got addicted to heroin and said her addiction started with pain pills legally described by a doctor. how many cases are people hooked
7:32 am
on heroin first described opiates? >> i would three-fourths. we have made a major effort in ohio. governor kasich and i when we took office we made a major effort to deal with that part of the opiate problems. we have taken the licenses of 50 doctors from ohio and made some real progress in that area. the goal is to slow that down so they don't end up with heroin -- by the way, either one, they can kill you. they do kill people. >> i thought jenna's mother is a nurse and says in bill whitaker's piece, we didn't prescribe this many pain pills 20 years ago, that that has changed and we have to look at that. i thought that was a real warning sign for parents. >> i have seen it with my own family and grandkids where they go in for, you know, wisdom tooth or something and a whole bunch of pain meds are prescribed. the idea is not to take any. >> mike, three-quarters of a billion pain pills were pretty
7:33 am
that is 65 pills for every woman, man, and child. that seems like a huge problem. >> i think the one mom last night made a point very, very good point. that the pendulum was too far the other way where, you know, we weren't really treating it as a society, treating people's pain. it flipped clear over here. we have to bring it back it to here. >> people say where was the outrage when it was a street drug and only limited to a poor community or minority community and now people outraged saying we have to do something about it. do you think that was true and what do you say about that? >> you're absolutely correct. in the '60s and '70s when i was a prosecutor, we looked at society and said those -- you know, those are just those people over there. they didn't think they could be us. whatever "us" was. it was somebody else in another city. and it couldn't be -- now, you know, this epidemic cuts across every kind of line, geographical but also by income. so anyone who is watching this or watched last night's "60

7:56 am
for some reason? >> actually the whole speech he had been a little disappointed in i think because everyone was so upset that day, charlie. everybody was so rattled. there was nothing you could do to make it better, and he felt that as he was giving the speech. but afterwards, he changed his mind a little bit. i picked up exactly what he felt. i went home sad that day. i think a bunch of us did. obviously we did. but i tell that story in a lecture that i gave to a bunch of college kids a few years ago who were all going into government. i said let me tell you about a moment in government where you just show up, it's a regular day, nothing is happening, and then big things happen. >> the day totally changes. you also say that all presidential speech writers should be in their 20s and 30s. that surprised me. >> oh, you should be young. your legs should still work. you should still be able to run down the hall and say, but mr. president, do you want me to kill this graph? and you should be young enough

7:59 am
jeb and the rise of marco. >> one of the things i'm hoping right now, by the way, is that each of these candidates pacs -- pacs exist in part to go dirty and go negative and attack. i hope they don't start doing that. they all did it in 2012. everybody let it go. this is the year the republican base is not going to let these guys, i think, tear each other apart without paying a price. look, the good part of what's happening on the republican side is it's alive, it's vibrant, it's a fight, it's a scrum. you've got the most unusual people in america involved in this thing. outsiers outsiders, insiders, old, young. >> you say you don't like to offend and sometimes you write tough criticisms about people. this past column that you wrote you basically declared jeb bush's dead. you said i don't mean to be rude, but -- >> she said he's not succeeded this year and there's no
8:00 am
>> yeah, yeah, that is tough. how could i do that? i've got to tell you, i take it very much as part of my job, you'll see it in this thing, to just tell you honestly what i think i'm seeing. and you're going to ruffle feathers when you do that and you're going to be sometimes a little tough, sometimes rude even. i always hope, i promise you at the end of the day, that i'm wrong. i hope they turn it around. do you know what i mean? i criticize the president. i hope two weeks later he does something that makes me go yay, that is fabulous. >> well, jeb bush is certainly hoping you're wrong. >> well, we'll see. we've given him a little test. i hope he meets it. >> all right, thank you, peggy of the congratulations. >> it was great to start this here with you. >> thanks.
